Hi everyone. I'm new to MusicBee and I love it !!!! Thanks to the community who made this possible.

Quick question : y default, MusicBee locate the library to : C:\Users\Music ... All my music is stored on an external drive 'F' ... I did modify MusicBee to point to the "F" drive for all my music (library). Now, if I'm adding music file to MusicBee, it plce the files to the "C" Music folder instead to my music folder librairy, located on my "F" drive. To correct this, I manually place new files music to the "F" drive music folder (librairy) and then adding them with MusicBee (add files to librairy) to be sure that they will stay to my "F" drive.

I would like Musicbee to place the new music files to the right folder artist in my "F" drive (just like iTunes) instead ton he "C" drive.

Now, I know, in the preferences settings (librairy), there is a "auto-organise media files" check box. Is this where I need to configure my issue ?... Or where should I configure or how (better way) ?

Thank you all !!!  8)

Hi, welcome to the forum!

MusicBee doesn't have any settings to move files when you first install it, so did you turn on auto-organize? Or automatically sweep and organize new files? Either of those will let you configure where you want the files to go. Auto sweep is a one-time event, where auto-organize will keep files up to date based on any changes you make.

Note that auto-organize requires a rule for each source drive. So if you have files on C: that you want to move to F:, you will need one rule for that, and another rule for organizing files already on F:.

If you expect to make tag changes with another program, like Picard or mp3tag, you will probably want to set up a monitored folder for your library so that MusicBee will catch the changes and import them automatically.
